Getting from Kefalonia Airport to Lassi

Lassi is a beautiful peninsula located just 1.5 km south of Argostoli. Once a sleepy farming village, it is now a bustling seaside resort that attracts many visitors during the summer months. Yet, though a busy spot, Lassi has managed to preserve its laid-down vibe and natural landscape intact.

Once you arrive at Kefalonia (Anna Polatou) Airport, there are two options to reach Lassi; a taxi or the bus. An airport taxi or private transfer is the most convenient choice, as cabs are available 24/7 at Arrivals and get you to Lassi within 10 minutes. On the other hand, the bus is an efficient transportation mode for the budget-conscious (€1.50 per single ticket, one-way), taking 20-25 minutes for the ride.
